TV5's own version of the late FPJ's original "Ang Panday" made its initial episode on primetime television this Monday, February 29, 2016. The series topbills Richard Gutierrez which incidentally marks his return after years of absence from doing primetime series on television.
Gutierrez admitted that playing “Ang Panday” is a “big shoe to fill.” He was referring to how the late Fernando Poe Jr., Philippine Cinema’s King of Action Films, popularized and elevated “Ang Panday” to iconic status in the 80’s.
Based from Carlo J. Caparas's original story, the series is being helmed by Mac Alejandre under Viva Entertainment.
The first TV version of the popular 70’s comic book novel by Carlo J. Caparas was produced 11 years ago by ABS-CBN starring Jericho Rosales as Flavio.
